|A small cohort of FRUM and Engrailed-expressing neurons mediate successful copulation in Drosophila melanogaster. (Volume 14) - Latham, Kristin L|
This article is from BMC Neuroscience, volume 14.AbstractBackground: In Drosophila, male flies require the expression of the male-specific Fruitless protein (FRUM) within the developing pupal and adult nervous system in order to produce male courtship and copulation behaviors. Recent evidence has shown that specific subsets of FRUM neurons are necessary for particular steps of courtship and copulation...
|Insulin signaling in the aging of healthy and proteotoxically stressed mechanosensory neurons. (Volume 5) - Scerbak, Courtney|
This article is from Frontiers in Genetics, volume 5.AbstractInsulin signaling is central to cellular metabolism and organismal aging. However, the role of insulin signaling in natural and proteotoxically stressed aging neurons has yet to be fully described. We studied aging of Caenorbaditis elegans mechanosensory neurons expressing a neurotoxic expanded polyglutamine transgene (polyQ128), or lacking this proteotoxicity stressor (polyQ0), under conditions in which the insulin signaling pathway w...

|A Broadly Implementable Research Course in Phage Discovery and Genomics for First-Year Undergraduate Students. (Volume 5) - Jordan, Tuajuanda C.|
This article is from mBio, volume 5.AbstractEngaging large numbers of undergraduates in authentic scientific discovery is desirable but difficult to achieve. We have developed a general model in which faculty and teaching assistants from diverse academic institutions are trained to teach a research course for first-year undergraduate students focused on bacteriophage discovery and genomics. The course is situated within a broader scientific context aimed at understanding viral diversity, such th...
